A deference for the sanctity of the soil and adherence to the timeless procedures of organic viticulture, were an integral part of the vision. Their parching quest, to secure some grand old blocks of vine in the elder precincts of Adelaide Hills, Coonawarra, Barossa and Valley Eden, were followed by years of corrective husbandry, pencil label releases and bespoke vintages.

Wirra Wirra RSW Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia
RSW is an acronym for Robert Strangways Wigley. He learned his craft during a tenure at Bankside under the tutelage of Thomas Hardy, who claimed to have never known anyone that worked harder than Wigley. RSW's wild pranks as a young man made him somewhat of an embarrassment to his family. In 1893 he was pointedly sent to rusticate in McLaren Vale where he undertook the planting of vines in 1894. By the turn of the century he was proprietor of the most eminent winemaking operation in the district, with a hundred acres under vine.

RSW is not made to a uniform style year after year, thereby crafted to reflect the very best wine Wirra Wirra can deliver. Parcels are picked from vineyards at Blewitt Springs, McLaren Vale and McLaren Flat in small batches and cold soaked for three days to extract maximum colour without the presence of alcohol. Each ferment is assessed twice daily to determine the cap management program, before basket pressing at the first sign of tannin hardness. Batches are transferred to an individual barrel selection, depending on vineyard block, before completing malolactic, rack and returned every four months. Matured nineteen months in a mix of seasoned and new French oak puncheons and barriques.
Deep plum colour with crimson rim. Bright plums, blueberries and raspberry fruits fill the nose, aniseed, leather and dark bitter chocolate add further complexity. The palate displays vibrant rich plum and raspberry fruits infused with bitter chocolate and aniseed that fill the mouth. The dense core of fruit is balanced by fine cedary oak and textural tannins providing a wine of superb line and splendid length, wonderful power, balance and style.
